Mosey selected as Director of BBC Sport

BBC Director-General Mark Thompson has announced the appointment of Roger Mosey as the new Director of BBC Sport.
Mosey joins BBC Sport from BBC News, where he has been Head of TV News since January 2000, with responsibility for output across the One, Six and Ten O'Clock news, Newsnight and News 24.
In his time at the BBC, Mosey was the Controller of Radio Five Live when it was named Sony National Radio Station of the Year in 1998, and he is a former Editor of the Today programme.
He will become the leader of BBC Sport as it progresses through the World Cup, to the Olympics in Beijing and in the build up to the 2012 Olympics in London.
Responsible for developing and strengthening Sport's multi-media, multi-platform programmes and services and leading BBC Sport into the future, he will also oversee the move to Manchester.
BBC Sport's current rights portfolio includes: the rights to the World Cup up to and including 2014; the Olympics up to and including 2012; Wimbledon; Six Nations; Open Golf; the FA Cup; Premier League football and the Grand National.
Mark Thompson said: "Sport is fundamental to what the BBC is about, and we are committed to bringing the big national sporting moments to the UK.
"Roger Mosey's experience and passion will be invaluable in leading the Sport Division through its imminent and long term challenges."
Mosey said: "I'm delighted to be moving to BBC Sport at such an exciting time, after the London Olympics decision and with the World Cup and Commonwealth Games coming up next year.
"I grew up listening to and watching BBC Sport, and I loved my time on Radio 5 Live. It's essential for the BBC that it's the place people come to for big national sports moments, and I know BBC Sport will continue to deliver that with style."
